May 16, 2022

INCIDENT

Parker-Hannifin Corporation suffered a data breach March 14, which forced the company to shut down some of its systems while some employees’ personally identifiable information ended up purloined.
Upon learning of this incident, Parker said its IT team immediately activated its incident response protocols, which included shutting down certain systems. Parker then launched an investigation with the assistance of a forensic investigation firm and other third-party cyber security and incident response professionals.
Parker, one of the largest companies in the world in motion control technologies, said it is working with law enforcement authorities. A security researcher called BlackFog said the Conti ransomware group, which has Russian ties, claimed responsibility for the attack back in April.
